Rockette is a 2002 mare registered and approved for breeding with Oldenburg NA.She has received her star for producing 3 premium foal so far.
She is by the Riverman son Reno(1st picture bottom) who was imported to the U.S by Hilltop Farm.
Reno is Riverman - Caretino - Landgraf I born1996 and a Holsteiner Stallion
Hilltop Farm imported Reno not long after the purchase of his sire Riverman. Reno’s type and athleticism destined him for a sport career, but the valuable Caretino blood on his dam side also presented interesting options for US breeders.
Dam, Lovely Girl (2nd photo bottom) by Barring - Goldika - Grossadmiral, and was ridden by riders: Debby Dolan-Sweeny / Brian Sweeny / Lynne Little .
Here are some of the hi-lights of her career:

Rockette has produced 5 foals so far with all them scoring 8.0's and above on movement, 3 were premium with one of those 3, by a pony stallion, being named a stallion prospect.
She is currently in foal to Cor Noir for a May 2013 .Cor Noir (3rd photo bottom) by the influential stallion Cor de la Bryere, was known for his scope and power which gives the ability to produce either dressage or Jumper progeny.Cor Noir's offspring are frequently termed calm, reliable, and unflappable, which is exactly how we would describe our 2012 Cor Noir filly.
Rockette is the sweetest mare, never in a bad mood, exceptionally easy to handle in all aspects,from farrier,breeding,foaling she is a delight to have around. She passes on this attitude to her foals.
Her foals are multi-talented, her oldest was bought by a professional dressage trainer as her own horse, the second is owned by a A/O who is aiming towards the jumpers and her 3rd foal was bought by a young rider on the USET Developing Rider list.The fourth is our keeper filly.
Last years foal, Calypso Girl, who is shown in the 3rd photo top row, continues in the vein of excellent temperament and powerful movement.
Rockette was broken as a 3 yr old but was bred as a 4 yr old so has never had a competitive career herself.
Only for sale as I am getting back to riding after several years of recovering from injuries!
